I have try to sow a few f2 of canestrino di lucca x andine cornue.They will be finished in greenhouse or at home if the fruits are not matures.

Bees are crazy about of virginia creeper flowers!
We have each year the impression to have a hive above ours heads.

 cow peas is polinisated by the wasps for me but they don't touch at the others beans.
Our dominants polinisators are bumble bee, apis melifera and xylocopa (she look like at cantabtita) but i'm not sure., Sometimes a few black wasps.

I don't know if your climate is sufficiently sweet  but we sow greens fertilisers the automn in our most bads soils for example mustarde, radish,aragula,mizuna cabbage,phacelia, wheat, some peas, saradella,lupins.They improve the soil structure at  spring for us some can kilk nematodes.
They are all edible.

You don't have required of a lot of compost.Cover the seeds is sufficient!
I think clay soil is the better of the soils and i think it largely possible even without compost.
He keep water so long time that directs seedlings can germinate without problem
I have for example sow beans without compost in clay soil.
The better for me in clay soil is squash, bean peas, chards
Squash in direct seedling is for me efficient.
Chards have very big leafs.
Squashs are more vigorous when i use the drys  peas plants for mulch them.
I have even succesed radish.
Try differents things in direct seedling you will be very surprise of the potential of your soil!
It is very efficient if you don't have slugs.

We have clay soil!
Our method we cover the seeds of compost or we mixed c compost at clay.
Plants are more strong in compost  than in potting soil.
Our alone problem is the eggsplants but for squashs, tomatos, melons its perfect.
We have a lot of spontaneus plants who germinate at placements or we expand compost on our clay soil
For example we can see here spontaneus watermelons and tomatos in this picture.

Canestrino di lucca x andine cornue was grow at 2 differents regions and the fruits are differents.
For me she look like at a san marzano horned with leafs more toward canestrino di lucca and for her in the other region she look at a san marzano without horn and she has leafs more wispy more toward andine cornue.

Hy william,
At placements or we expand compost we have often volunteers tomato plants and they are often more strong than plants sow at home.
